Need something to do this weekend?

Aside from a few war battles, the legalization of gambling in Nevada and the birth of Bruce Willis, March 19 is, historically speaking, quite an uneventful day. This March 19th, join the Louisville Area Chapter as it gives winter a proper send-off.

Red Cross chapters across the nation are honoring Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords with Save-a-Life Saturday, March 19, 2011. As part of the event, the Louisville Area Chapter is holding two FREE classes to teach essential CPR and first aid skills from 10-11 a.m. at the following locations:

Main Office
510 E. Chestnut St.
Louisville, KY 40201
(50 student max.)

Southwest Jefferson County Branch Office
Medical Office Bldg. I - Suite 310
9702 Stonestreet Road
(40 student max.)

Classes are first come first serve. Register online or call 561-3605.

Saturday night, members of the community are invited to the Louisville Marriott Downtown for the inaugural Wrapped in Red Gala to celebrate the American Red Cross Louisville Area Chapter and its community services. Cocktails, dinner and dancing to "The Atlanta Allstars" are just a few things guests can look forward to.

It's not too late to buy tickets! Visit our website to purchase tickets to either the gala or the Red Lounge--a side event featuring hors d'oeuvres, complimentary cocktails and dancing to DJ Fluid and "The Atlanta Allstars." Proceeds from both events benefit the chapter's community disaster programs.

It's been six years since the chapter's last gala event "The Great Gatsby." Visit the nFocus website for an exclusive interview with Madeline Abramson, Wrapped in Red Co-Chair.

As you walk from the Marriott to our official after party at Prime Lounge, don't forget to keep an eye out for the supermoon. As long as the skies are clear, it shouldn't be too hard to spot.
